*** In the second film you see the same officials wonder if there will be string cheese at Mia's birthday.

* EveryoneCanSeeIt: Joe and Clarisse - when they announce they're going to get married even the bishop mouths "finally". Given the first film has the Prime Minister's handing Clarisse over to dance with Joe, it doesn't seem they tried hard to hide their feelings.

* GenerationXerox: Many of the problems Mia faces when starting out as a princess are similar to what her grandmother had to deal with (as Clarisse had married into royalty). Even Mia's marriage to Andrew [[spoiler:(had it gone through)]] -- Clarisse was deeply fond of her first husband, calling him her best friend, but judging by how people act around Joe when not in the presence of royalty, it was absolutely no secret that the man she was actually in love with was him. Similarly, it's clear Andrew and Mia care for each other, but not in the romantic sense.



* {{Homage}}: In the second movie, Mia dances with a succession of royal suitors with humorous personalities and/or odd dance styles, much as Creator/AudreyHepburn (also playing a somewhat unorthodox princess) does in ''Film/RomanHoliday''.

* NoSenseOfPersonalSpace: When Nicolas attempts to woo Mia, he pulls her close to him and kisses her at least one.

to:

* {{Nepotism}}: A throwaway gag line in the sequel reveals that the reason why Mia's suite wasn't ready upon her arrival is because they asked her grandfather's cousin to do the bathroom. As Clarisse puts it, nepotism belongs in the arts -- not plumbing.

Added DiffLines:

* ParentalMarriageVeto: The whole conflict of the second movie could've been avoided if they had betrothed Nicholas to Mia -- especially since it was becoming increasingly clear to anyone watching them interact that they wouldn't be opposed to the idea ''at all''. Nicholas even brings up the possibility to his uncle, who immediately shoots it down as he does not want anyone to threaten his attempts to make Nicholas a PuppetKing.

** A subtle one, also somewhat related to the beach party debacle. Right before Mia mentions the FootPopping, her mother calls Josh a "[[BackstreetBoys Backstreet Boy]] clone". Later, when Mia shows up at school the day after the scandal, "What Makes You Different" by the Backstreet Boys is playing in the background.

* LessonsInSophistication: The first film covers Mia's princess education. Despite the fact that the [[TheKlutz clumsy]], [[NoSocialSkills awkward]] Mia doesn't take naturally to any of her lessons and clowns her way through them, she still absorbs quite a lot, and is able to demonstrate much of what she's learned in her grand debut at the end of the film.

Very little resembles the plot of the books. For the first film, much of the core plot from the first book does remain, however major changes were made to some plot points and characters or some of them were removed entirely. The second film, ''The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement'' is in fact an entirely new creation: the only plot point from the books being used was Mia's mother marrying her teacher and having a baby with him. However, these movies gave the world Anne Hathaway, for which the world will be forever grateful (and ChrisPine, for which women everywhere will be forever grateful), and are popular sleepover fare with preteen (and not so preteen) girls to this day. A 2-movie collection, containing both films, was released on Blu-ray Disc on May 15, 2012.

Added DiffLines:

* NoSparks: Mia and Andrew's problem in the sequel. They click immediately -- as friends. While they would have had a comfortable marriage had the wedding gone through, it wouldn't have necessarily been ''happy''. This relationship apparently mirrors that between Mia's grandparents. Clarissa called her late husband her best friend, and she was happy with him, but she didn't ''love'' him -- at least, not as much as she should have, and not quite in the way a wife would love her husband.

Added DiffLines:

* RomanticRunnerUp: Andrew really is just as nice as he appears, and if things had been different, he and Mia probably could have made a go of a content, if not exactly passionate, marriage. He is seen standing with Lilly and Nicholas at Mia's coronation, making it clear that they did remain friends.
